About the Channel

Welcome to 7mate.

Take a seat and relax. Go ahead, kick back and put your feet on the table – it’s OK, you’re with mates now. No need to wash your hands. No need to take your shoes off. It’s time for you to reclaim the lounge room. 7mate is here, and it’s here for you.

In fact, why don’t you say hello to a few of the mates you’ll be seeing around here, starting with the funny ones: All new, first run episodes of FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD, and EASTBOUND AND DOWN lead 7mate’s primetime comedy schedule. THAT 70’S SHOW, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, MY WIFE AND KIDS, ACCORDING TO JIM and GARY UNMARRIED round out the laughs.

Reality TV doesn’t have to be girly TV. We’ve got the US ratings hit JERSEY SHORE, along with PIMP MY RIDE. We’ve also got MONSTER GARAGE with Jesse G. James.

Awesome documentaries and factual hits on 7mate will see series such as MEGA STRUCTURES, MIGHTY SHIPS, BUILT FROM DISASTER, AIR CRASH INVESTIGATIONS and MYTHBUSTERS in primetime.

Friday night is the home for big ACTION MOVIES and AFL then gear up for the V8’S LIVE on Saturdays.

So as you can see, there’s plenty of great stuff to watch here, and it’s just for you.

We think you’ll like it here.

7mate - man’s best friend.

Click here if you’d like more detail on our programs and scheduled times.

To receive 7mate from 25 September, you will need to tune into channel 73 on an HD capable Digital TV, PVR or set top box. If you have an analogue television you will need to connect your TV to an HD capable Digital set top box, PVR, or Digital recorder and tune in to channel 73.

''Until the switch-off of analogue at the end of 2013 each commercial television licensee is limited by legislation to one SD multichannel and one HD multichannel. These were the changes to the Broadcasting Services Act introduced in 2006.

After switchover, each broadcaster may transmit as many channels as they like but clearly this is limited by the amount of spectrum they have available to them. The allocation to each commercial broadcaster of 7MHz is pretty much filled up by two SD channels and one HD.

Therefore like Nine and Ten (from next year), Seven has opted to maximise the use of our available spectrum to provide diversity of programming for our viewers. Viewers will still be able to find a number of fantastic programme options presented in rich HD on our new multichannel 7mate. We encourage them to check it out.''

    Mr T Foolish People show - I am appalled at the use of the song "Move #$%$ - Get Out the Way" on this show at 7:35pm when children are watching. It is a sexist and totally digusting song that has no place on television that is broadcast into our homes.

    What's happened to the old movies you used to show on a Sunday morning? All horrible home selling stuff now. Bring back the old movies....and try to vary them a bit more, don't just keep replaying the same few over and over. Thank you.

    So in all my times of watching Mate I was operating under the misapprehension that it's an equal opportunity channel but apparently not. Apparently none of these shows are for my female eyes *gasp* *pearl clutch* This kind of gendered advertising angle is outdated, stupid and sexist. GUESS WHAT, women like this kind of stuff too. Look into that do some research on how not to look like a bunch of idiots. TA! Gonna keep watching your channel though, whatcha gonna do about it??

    I get Foxtel and I am watching the Hopman Cup right now! 7mate is on my foxtel system (channel 207). I am thinking the people who are saying they can't watch it perhaps live in a regional area or maybe have not upgraded to the HD packages available. Thank you Channel 7!! After 3 long years of only being able to watch Aussie tennis on SD, its great to be able to watch it again in HD!! Maybe one day the Australian Open will be broadcast on the HD channel again? Looking forward to that day, no matter how long it takes!!

    why do you have to put hopman cup tennis on 7mate taking of your usual programs when 7 has other channels you could put tennis on

    Likewise, I am on foxtel and am really disappointed to not be able to watch the Hopman cup and have spent the last hour trying to work out if there is any other way to view this! I love this tournament and could always rely on seeing it on the ABC. I don't understand what the issue issue is between foxtel and 7 mate but it is frustrating. If there is any way to still see this tennis live I would love to know what it is.
